  • yep, it's normal.

    depends on the size of the clot, and the amount of bleeding that follows. call them and let them know, but don't rush to the ER or anything yet ;o)

  • Yes it is normal. You put a lot of strain on your body pushing and having contractions. It was a rough work-out and your muscles are fatigued (the weakness). I was sore for two weeks. Clots are normal. You should call your doctor if you see any that are larger than a quarter. If your sick feelings and weakness is followed by a high fever, then you should call your doctor.
